Suf­fer­ing the cold

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -

Ed­i­tor,

How long is long enough? I live in a Hous­ing Corp place in Ti­tahi Bay. Since I moved in Novem­ber 2009 I have been try­ing to get some­thing done about the in­su­la­tion un­der floor that is ripped and fall­ing down.

I was told in Fe­bru­ary 2011 that it would be re­placed while they were do­ing ren­o­va­tions – noth­ing was done.

I have rung many times and writ­ten to ten­ancy man­agers. I have made five calls to the 0800 num­ber. Still noth­ing has been done.

I am a care­ful ten­ant, with se­ri­ous health prob­lems – asthma and di­a­betes, also nerve dam­age to my legs con­nected to the di­a­betes.

So how does a per­son have to put up with the wind roar­ing up through the floor? Please Hous­ing Corp, how much longer must I suf­fer the cold? blan­ket in­su­la­tion, which is more mod­ern and ro­bust.

(Re­sponse abridged) the coun­cil as soon as pos­si­ble to dis­cuss set­ting up his op­er­a­tion in an area where it ob­vi­ously would be wel­come, in­stead of per­se­ver­ing with his plan for the Aotea La­goon where it cer­tainly will not.
